A Touching Tribute to John Lucente

John Lucente, chef de cuisine at Touch Restaurant and Lounge for the past three years, has been battling cancer at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. To help, Touch is hosting a fundraising dinner, “Touched By John,” on Sunday, July 29th, at 7:00 p.m. All profits will go to the chef for his treatments.

"John is a wonderful person and a talented chef," said David Tornek, Touch's founder and owner. "We want him to know that his friends, his colleagues and his neighbors are rooting for his speedy recovery."

For information and reservations, call Touch Restaurant and Lounge at 305-532-8003.
